Musonoi Open Pit, Shaba Province, Zaire
This specimen from the famous Zairean locality at Shaba boasts deep green, tabular prisms that measure up to about 1/8 inch in diameter. The crystals are packed tightly enough to form a crust over part of the host rock's surface, and veins of the mineral can be seen invading it on the rest of the surface. The green color is very pretty, and though the crystal form isn't highly defined, it is easily discernable, and almost produces a "moss" effect. Besides, it's radioactive, and that's really cool(or, HOT)!
